According to the reports, Ireland’s response to Covid-19 is the second lightest in the world, an analysis of 185 countries has found.
Ongoing tracking of the severity of government measures by the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University puts Ireland above Mongolia in terms of current restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Last week, the Government made growing calls to reintroduce some public health restrictions, such as mask-wearing on public transport, following in-hospital surge cases, which stood at 1,452 on Saturday.
The Irish Government announced that travelers from other countries are no longer required to present proof of vaccination or recovery from the Coronavirus. Besides, they are also exempted from the requirement to fill in the Passenger Locator Form (PLF).
The Irish Government confirmed that travelers from other countries are eligible to enter Ireland restriction-free from March 6.
“There are no post-arrival testing or quarantine requirements for travelers to Ireland. Travel carriers will not ask to check a PLF receipt before traveling to Ireland. Any individual who develops Covid-19 symptoms while in Ireland should follow the HSE (Health Service Executive) guidance about isolation and undertaking antigen or PCR testing as appropriate,” the Irish Government pointed out.
